Keep Your Sword Sharp.

To stay focused on the fundamentals requires keeping our swords sharp. At salvation we are issued a two edged sword, we are granted ears that can hear his word, for it is written:

For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power-
making it active, operative, energizing and effective;
it is sharper that any two-edged sword, penetrating to
the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal]
spirit, and of joints and marrow [that is, the deepest parts of our nature]
exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very
thoughts and purposes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12AMP
God's living word will activate and energize our lives when we spend time with him listening. Listening keeps our swords sharp. While there we can praise him for equipping us with his two-edged sword. Daily Meditation on his word combined with praise of our almighty God makes for powerfully effective days. We can ward off our enemies successfully.
And while spending time alone with him, his word exposes where we are in error, sifting, analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of our hearts. We can then confess and asked to be filled with his Holy Spirit. Cleansed and filled children of God change the world in miraculous ways. The ripple effect spans the globe. Let's remain accountable to each other to keep our swords sharp, shiny and by our side. The world needs to hear the magnificent word that God speaks.
